Limoncello is traditionally made from the zest of Femminello St Teresa lemons also known as Sorrento lemons. It is basically lemon vodka. The lemon zest is basically steeped in vodka until the oil is released. The resulting yellow liquid is the mixed with simple syrup.
You can get lots of different recipes to make some yourself and give as presents or you can buy it in an off licence.
It is lovely to have after a meal to drink or you can pour some over ice-cream for a lovely grown up desert. I keep some always in the fridge..... It's the Italian in me!!
Have a wonderful day.
